Following commissioning, Ryan reported to Pensacola, Florida for initial aviation training, and was designated a Naval Aviator in January of 2016.

Upon earning his Wings of Gold as a helicopter pilot, he reported to the HSM-73 Battlecats at Naval Air Station North Island to fly the MH-60R Seahawk.
